At the 2018 Colorado Classic Stages 1 & 2, hosted by Vail, winners are awarded very cool medals and trophies, both custom-designed and fabricated by Colorado metal artist Lisa Issenberg, of Kiitellä (Finnish v. meaning to thank, applaud or praise).
The Medals:
“Gold, silver and bronze” medals — actual metals are solid brass, stainless steel and bronze patina’d brass — in the curvaceous form of a bicycle chain link, ready to open a bottle of Colorado brewed beer, or hold a key… And the neck ribbon?.. a slice of used bike tube. A slick and fully functional award for the podium finishers. 
The Trophies:
Vail’s iconic Gore Range is captured in steel, and capped with used bicycle chain, welded to the ridge. Thick, satin-polished “gold, silver and bronze” rings frame a metal printed Colorado Classic logo.

HOT JAZZ harkens back to the 30’s and 40’s in Europe where DJANGO teamed with top Jazz Violinist STEPHANE GRAPPELLI to create The HOT CLUB QUINTETTE of France …the greatest musical partnership in European history Jazz history. The DJANDO FESTIVAL ALLSTARS follow in their footsteps taking the music beyond with original compositions , hip improvisations and some of Django’s lasting greats. This ‘hot-swing’ form of jazz has its roots in American popular music and in the reverence for Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and other top American jazz figures. They swing like crazy and will break your heart with a ballad. Each of them are composers and while this music can harken back to the great music of the past, their interpretations, arrangements, virtuosity, and original compositions bring a newness to Django’s style and take it beyond.

The DJANGO REINHARDT FESTIVAL is going into is in its 18th successful year with packed houses at its home, the legendary music club BIRDLAND, in New York City-and tours prestigious halls across the country such as Rose HALL/Jazz at Lincoln Center, Disney Hall in LA, The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, The San Francisco Festival, and many more.  These world class musicians, who come from France, now called the DJANGO FESTIVAL ALLSTARS, led by members of the legendary gypsy family of Dorado Schmitt…. the best players to come out of the Festival. They return to New York twice a year, Summer and Fall, for 6 days, 12 sold out shows at Birdland and tours.

An intimate portrait of an unlikely rock star: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. With unprecedented access, the filmmakers explore how her early legal battles changed the world for women.  At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg’s exceptional life and career.
